Robert Gramacy has been named as a professor of complex stochastic modeling in the Department of Statistics, part of the Virginia Tech College of Science. He also is an affiliate member with the college’s Academy of Integrated Sciences’ Computational Modeling and Data Analytics program.
Gramacy focuses his research on real-data analysis where current solutions are inefficient and thus skimp on fidelity. He seeks to identify new models, methods, and algorithms, while remaining grounded in the needs of a motivating application as he develops new general-purpose software for the at-large scientific community.
Gramacy is one of 18 tenured and tenure-track faculty members to join the College of Science and its affiliated programs this year.
